Ceiling Fan Wont Work
 
Yesterday I Installed a new ceiling fan....When I Removed the old one it still had power. I put in the new ceiling fan and it will not work....Actually i beilieve that theres no power going to it Seems to have no power not even to the switch. What could make this happen??...Where are some places to start looking..??

Tripped breaker/AFCI?
Did you disconnect any wires in the ceiling box other than what was connected to the old fan?

no disconnected nothing else checked all the breakers....nothing else in house is without power :furious:

How is the fan wired. Tell us wire by wire how you connected the fan to the wires in the ceiling box.

there is also the remote possiblilty that the fan is a factory defect....this happens too.

Loose/bad wire connection?

It seems then to be something with the way you put wire to wire - faulty fan?

ceiling fan won't work
 
markellingejr.

This ceiling fan, is it a paddle fan, or a flush mounted exhaust air type?

Post back, and I tell you my way to check out the fan. And you won't
need a ladder to do it.
